All children communicate in their own way. This post is a reminder for parents, caregivers, family, and school staff to be a safe place for children so that they may feel comfortable to express themselves in any way that comes naturally.
If you don’t yet understand their beautifully unique language, it is your responsibility to find out ways to learn their language and how to teach them everything. Neglect and negativity is unacceptable and so very damaging. Bridge the communication gap. It’s all about a translation. Think of people like countries, if it helps you, to understand that we each live in our own experience of the world. Begin with love, trust, and a sensitive promise that you will help them always. Let them know: You will be there, being supportive, healthy, safe, encouraging, and inspiring. You will listen with all of your senses. Empathy is the key to every language.
Everyone learns in their own way. Everyone deserves attention, patience, love, and a real education. Each child is beautiful and intelligent. Equality for education in every way is a basic right that needs to become a reality for each child worldwide. Every person has a lifetime of wonders to live and share with the world. Be the guide, the helper, the parent.
In our homeschool, we love to learn every language. We learn with every sense. We keep our minds open and invite new ideas and connections. Learning languages is interesting, humbling, and I encourage everyone to learn as much about other cultures as possible to create awareness for world peace.
Every person, no matter the age, can resolve, redesign, and replace ways of living that we know do not work by simply living empathically. Make it all better, not worse. Confusion is the beginning of learning something new. Open your heart and find out what comes next… I’ll let you know…it’s something very good. Trust me. You’ll love it!
Love to all of the children. You deserve everything positive, respectful, inclusive, and so very kind. Shine your light! Love, Amor Milagre
The Silent Child by Rachel Shenton is a short film that sheds a profound awareness for one example of a child who needs someone to really listen and help. Redesign every educational system to help everyone. Love to all.
